Liberty lovers! Show the GOP we have things in common!Submitted by Vots on Wed, 11/07/2012 - 02:18
In the Republican primaries, Ron Paul supporters (Liberty lovers) showed their might; two million strong -- at least the ones that voted. We were cheated out of a lot of state wins.
Going into the Republican convention we were beaten while we were down. Going through a battered process leading up to the convention, we still expected fair treatment; we got none of it.
The GOP effectively said during those days, we don't need you. You were a distraction. You are not the future of the party.
Republicans lost because of Liberty lovers.
The GOP will have a lot of soul searching; they are at a very vulnerable time. And we have the pieces in place.
We have Liberty candidates in congress. Rand Paul is the Liberty leader in the Senate. Justin Amash is now the Liberty leader in the House. We will hopefully add another leader of Liberty to the Senate in 2014, Tom Davis of South Carolina. We have the first GOP chairwoman, Ashley Ryan, in Maine. We have taken over the GOP parties in quite a few other states, including Iowa, Nevada, and Alaska.
While our protest votes today were admirable, as you saw, the system is too corrupt. The deck has been stacked against us.
Just like he's always been throughout his career, when Ron Paul has told us we must work within the system to receive the gains, he was right. We all held hope that maybe we could break the chains without doing so, but it's clear now, we still have more work to do.
Let's not get discouraged. Continue to build up our ranks within the GOP. Do NOT leave those that are already in hanging on without our support. A Libertarian wing has been established within the GOP. Don't turn a blind eye to the progress that we've made. While the gains in the GOP aren't overwhelming, they're there. And the GOP is at a weakened state right now, they are ripe for the taking.
The next election cycle comes in 2014. Get involved. Educate current Republicans you know. It's not hard to get them on board. I live in South Carolina -- a state people believe is a Republican cookie cutter. But they're actually the easiest to tap into, and I've steered many to the ideas of Liberty already.
It's time to RELOAD!
